Raksha Bandhan


Raksha Bandhan is observed
on the date of full moon
in the month of Shravana
it is the bracelet of safety
made of thread

Raksha Bandhan is a festival
of brothers and sisters
celebrated and enjoyed
with full enthusiasm

On this day sister prays
for love, peace, prosperity
and long life of her brother
or any good wishes as may be

On this day brother swears
to give protection to his sister
to to give all pleasures in her life
to make her life happy and gay

On this day, sister ties this bracelet
made of threads on right wrist
of her brother, make a small rounded
mark with rori or sandal on forehead
of her brother, offer him sweets

Brother offer gifts or his wishes
for her peaceful and prosperous life

Ramesh does think
this festival of love and affection
between brothers and sisters
be observed world wide

No God, Allah, Ishwar or
any spiritual power has any problem

Not only this, all may observe the festival
irrespective of race and religion,
celebrate throughout the year
this will lead us to progress
for a brightest and joyful world.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
